(
Ben) ..Managed by the Gärtner family since 1902. Off the beaten path and seldom frequented by foreign tourists. Balconies, flowers, indoor pool, babbling brook, beautiful location. Langenthal is a good base for exploring the Neckar Valley. It is located NE of Heidelberg and about 5 km NW of Hirschhorn. If the weather is nice - sit out on the sun terrace - try their "Odenwälder Apfelmostbraten" with a nice Bier and enjoy the scenery...

The menu might be a little pricey (by our standards) but the view of the Neckar river and valley is fantastic. A great place for a light lunch and a Bier on a clear day.

Directly across from the famous Rathaus

If the weather is good, grab a table outside with a perfect view of the old town hall just across the square. The Schnitzel is excellent and the Bier is Schmucker (outstanding). Inside is nice and cozy as well. Larry highly recommends the Jägerschnitzel with Pommes, smothered in brown gravy...

...The food is wonderful and the atmosphere is great. The building is 200 - 300 years old and the restaurant goes WAY back, too. It's really a treat to eat there. Bob took Roger and me there when we were in Heidelberg and he loves the place. I ate there again on another occasion when in Heidelberg.

..Ed and I decided to splurge a little while in Heidelberg and booked Die Hirschgasse Hotel on the other side of the Neckar. It is located in a quiet neighborhood and within a 5-10 minute walk along the Neckar to the Alte Brucke. This hotel was a real find! I had booked their Romance Package, which included Champagne Breakfast and a dinner in their formal dining room, Le Gourmet. We had hoped to have dinner tomorrow night so we could spend our first night in town, exploring all the old student taverns with Carson and Michelle, but it could only be arranged for this evening. No problem! We would spend the rest of the afternoon exploring and return for dinner later.

We return to the Hirschgasse and change for dinner. It was sensational, to say the least! We started with Taittinger Champagne (told you the place was classy), radishes, a variety of breads, and..."Oh the Saints be Praised"...Quark! I had heard of quark, but didn't fully realize how delectable it really is. This was fabulous...I could have skipped the rest of the meal and just eaten the quark. But...our next course was even better! The appetizer was an eggroll on top of rice noodles, with a sauce to die for! Again...I didn't need to go any farther...just keep bringing the quark and appetizer!

Next course was Cream of Potato Soup with Fresh Salmon Rosette. The soup was wonderful...but, I'm not a salmon lover and this stuff was raw, I think! Ed goes bonkers over the salmon. "Best I've ever had, anywhere", he raves and encourages me to try some. I take the plunge, and try a small piece that has been sitting in the hot soup and is, therefore, cooked. I must admit...pretty darned good...for salmon, that is!

Our main course is a Skewer of Free Range Chicken with Vegetables and another fantastic sauce...wish I knew what the sauces were. It had Spargel, Carrots, Fennel, etc. I sure wish I knew what the Germans do to make their vegetables so fantastic tasting!

Dessert consisted of Crepes with Sweet Quark, Lemon Sorbet, Vanilla Sauce and a Plum Confit. Very nice, although I'm not much on dessert. We had topped off our dinner with a great bottle of Rotwein and were feeling very satisfied! It was a lovely, memorable meal, but...we had some rowdy taverns to get to. A total change of pace!

(Larry - 2003) ...After a relaxing couple of hours we decide to take Frau Weitzel's (hostess at the farm where we are staying) suggestion and head for the Schmucker brewery, which also has a nice Gasthof attached. Apparently it is a hit with the locals as several of the outdoor tables are occupied as we plop down on the terrace and order up. Naturally we have to have the local brew, and I opt for the pan-fried fish with potatoes, and a large bowl of Goulaschsuppe. We are deliciously stuffed and the damage is only about 10 Euro each...

(Larry - 2005) ...For dinner I decided to make a repeat visit to the Brauerei-Gasthof “Schmucker”, located in nearby Unter Mossau. We first found this place in ’03, just down the road from the farm where we were staying. It is a popular place with the locals. As luck would have it there are no crowds today. There is a nice tree shaded patio out back which is strung up with lights, sort of like Xmas, for a nice effect. The brewery itself is right next door. It has been a good day of playing tourist and this seems like a fitting end. I order up a Schmucker, along with Goulaschsuppe and a Schweinschnitzel. The tab, only E11...

Located just north of Mosbach

Cozy, comfortable dining room - perfect for relaxing after a long day of touring the Odenwald. Nice menu loaded with lots of national and regional dishes. Without a doubt - the best Kaseschnitzel I have ever had. Excellent Bier! Outside Biergarten if the weather is good...
